Greg Meffert has threatened to file a libel suit against U.S. Attorney General Jim Letten for holding a press conference today and claiming that he, his wife, and co-conspirator, Mark St. Pierre, are being charged with 63 counts of felony charges.
Meffert stated, "Jim Letten has tarnished my name and my service to this city...he has clearly stated erroneous accusations about my ability to play the game, brah. C'mon, man....I'm gonna collect my thoughts and sue that dude!"
I kid...I kid....
I still just can't believe he has been so arrogant through this process. Some of you may remember I hinted back in May that Linda Meffert was under the gun as well. What I think this tells us is that Meffert refused to cooperate with the investigation....I think he may have even have refused to acknowledge it. This is pretty sad....he's such an idiot.
His reponse to the judgment in the civil suit was to rattle off an indignant letter to Gambit citing his family....the best thing he could have done if he truly cared about his family was to shut his big mouth and do what he could to keep his wife out of the pokey.
Meanwhile....don't max out on schadenfreude over this. I'm hearing that more indictments are coming and you may be surprised at the targets. Let's just say that the creation of the CTO position has turned into a gravity well for corruption....I wouldn't want to hold that position right now...ahem...
Correction: At one point I was begging for an editor...now I realize AZ readers are the editors.
There is only one U.S. Attorney General that's Eric Holder!. Mr Letten is the U.S. Attorney (sans general) for the Eastern District of Louisiana.
And I stand corrected once again. Thank you sir.
Call him what you will....round here they're calling him a fucking rock star and he's not even half way through his set.
Correction 2: Another brief correction: That (Meffert's response) wasn't just to Gambit, but a statement Meffert sent to all local media. I called to follow up on it and he was gracious enough to talk to me about how he thought the media coverage had been slanted.
